Happy Scobles + ConvergeSouth hones interview skill
Credit goes to Sue Polinsky for this fun pic at her home. 'Twas a great evening (tasty crab dip too ... correction per Sue: LOBSTER DIP :).
After ConvergeSouth ended Saturday afternoon, Robert and Maryam - pictured above with some cheesy gal... - agreed to interview for the film project.
-World needs good love: The footage shows some happy, hugging Scobles (...not a lesson for interviewing but rather in life: world needs good love!)
-Use the tripod (or talk more softly when interviewing): My voice interfered with their audio at times.
-Calm down & focus, even if the interview subjects are happy, fun, nice: I was nervous about their time & getting them out of there. In reviewing footage, the nervousness is clear because I didn't follow-up with Robert a few times on his replies with a "why" or "that's interesting, tell more".
It was great meeting them. Yet the procured footage works for a quick vlog -vs- an independent interview segment for the documentary.
I beat up on myself yesterday & then my husband said: "It's all unfolding." --Not sure what that means but it inspires a sense of calm.
...& this thought: flying to Cali within six months for a Scoble follow-up (too extreme?)?! Or maybe a recorded phone interview via Skype.
